Definition

A posse of policemen who are constantly on the move. Usually visible in beacon-topped jeeps, they have the look and manner of ever-ready law-enforcers. Constantly on the beat in several towns in Kerala. Have the mandate to literally swoop down on minor offenders - hence the name.

Usage

"Shaapil kasha-pisha undakanda! Flying Squad-kaar epozhengilum aarikyum varunne."

(Dont make a ruckus in the shaap. The Flying Squad could get here any moment.)
